Professional Development

The Office of Diversity, Equity and Belonging is honoring our commitment to serve as a resource and create a space for belonging and professional development. Ivy Tech has developed a partnership with CORA Learning to bring thorough, relevant, and nationally-recognized certificates for diversity, equity & belonging-related courses for staff and faculty. These certificates are free for all staff and faculty.

Specifically, we have 4 new certifications available, including the following:   

  1. Teaching Men of Color in the Community College: This course provides community college instructional faculty with strategies and approaches that can be used to foster enhanced learning among college men of color.

  2. Supporting Men of Color in the Community College: This course provides community college advisors, student service officers, and support staff with strategies and approaches that can be used to foster enhanced learning, development, and success among college men of color. In this course, learners will discuss trends, issues, and salient influences on experiences and outcomes for community college men of color.   

  3. Implicit Bias: This program is designed to provide an introduction to the topic of unconscious bias to educators. The program highlights variation definitions of unconscious associations, discusses the influence of these associations on student success and provides pathways to better understand unconscious bias in education. 

  4. Racial Microaggressions: This program provides educators with an introduction to racial microaggressions and their numerous manifestations in educational settings. The program also provides recommendations on how to reduce the prevalence and influence of microaggressions on recipients.

Supplier Diversity

Ivy Tech is committed to supporting the Indiana economy by giving suppliers equitable opportunities to provide goods and services. This includes ensuring supplier diversity. As such, all suppliers – including small business enterprises, women, minority, and veteran owned businesses – are invited and encouraged to do business with us. We recognize our suppliers as a key source of knowledge and rely on them to help us improve the quality and value of services provided to our students.


Title IX

The Title IX Educational Amendments of 1972 state that “no person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.”

Ivy Tech Community College is committed to preventing and responding promptly to all forms of sexual misconduct, which includes sex or gender-based discrimination, sexual harassment, sexual violence, dating violence, domestic violence, sexual exploitation, and stalking. All employees have an obligation to help ensure this commitment.
